Comprehensive coverage of all aspects of the law of community property in Washington, including (1) registered domestic partnerships and same-sex marriage and (2) the law of committed intimate relationships, which continues to evolve.
Regarding same-sex marriage, this edition includes analysis of the Supreme Court's decision declaring Section 3 of the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional, and its impact on a variety of federal statutes that might otherwise have blocked recognition of community property rights now conferred on same-sex spouses by Washington law. This edition has also amplified the chapter on conflict of laws to address the intersection of community property law with Indian law.
